At a "Rock to Stop Walmart" rally and concert Saturday night, Good Growth DeKalb leaders said they're still pursuing a legal case against the international retailer as it plans to move into Suburban Plaza in North Decatur.
The concert was held at the Beacon Hills Arts Center. The group said it hoped to raise between $5,000 and $10,000 at the rally, according to a story by WSB-TV.
"We think there is a possibility we can move forward on a legitimate cause," Betty Blondeau told Channel 2's Ashley Swann.
Blondeau says they support local, small and mid-sized businesses in the Surburban Shopping Plaza, not Walmart, which they believe will damage the community and lower property values.
